Do you love wearing jeans as much as I do?  If I had to guess I would say you’re answer is yes because honestly, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love wearing jeans! Denim is the backbone of any functional wardrobe so having a few good pairs on hand is crucial if you want getting dressed to seem easy versus a chore every day.  I literally wear jeans almost every single day so I’m always on the hunt for the next best pair.  As with anything in life, the denim trends are continuing to change this year so if you’re wondering which style of denim is OUT and which style of denim is IN then keep scrolling for some amazing ways to wear your jeans in 2023.

OUT OF STYLE: CROPPED FLARES SWAP FOR HIGH-WAISTED STRAIGHT-LEG:

The first denim trend that is OUT in 2023 is the cropped flare jean. I honestly feel like this is one of the most unflattering styles of denim out there and it boggles my mind why there is still a market for it! If it makes you feel good then by all means, you do you! but personally, I’m not sad to see this trend go. The replacement style I recommend is a flattering high-waisted straight-leg denim instead. These jeans by Agolde are the ideal pair for the job in my opinion. Even if you haven’t had luck with high-waisted jeans in the past, I implore you to try an 8 or 10-inch rise and see what they do to elongate your legs! I’m wearing a size 24 in these flattering jeans.

OUT OF STYLE: OVERLY RIPPED JEANS SWAP FOR SLIGHTLY RIPPED DENIM:

The next denim trend that is out for 2023 is overly ripped denim. I’m talking about the jeans with more holes than fabric in between them! Now ya’ll know that I love my ripped jeans, mostly because they match my personality and my style. However, I have always gravitated towards a more tasteful style of minimal distressing, where it’s really just there to add some interest. Lucky for me, minimally distressed denim is one of the top denim trends of 2023 so I can just keep doing my thing! These high-waisted wide-leg jeans by Frame are a great example of minimally distressed denim since they really only have it in one spot. Cathy and I are both wearing a size 24 in these fabulous jeans,

OUT OF STYLE: STEP HEM DENIM SWAP FOR AN EVEN HEMLINE:

The next style of denim that is OUT in 2023 is step hem denim. This is basically where the front hem portion is shorter than the back. It was originally introduced as a way to create interest and draw the eye down, but personally, I have always felt it looked a little odd. So, if you’re wanting to stay in the realm of the top denim trends of 2023 I suggest a pair of denim with an even hemline all the way around. These high-waisted straight-leg jeans by Veronica Beard are SO flattering and are even on SALE right now for just under $150 ( down from $330). I’m wearing a size 24 in these beloved jeans.

OUT OF STYLE: OVERLY FRAYED HEMLINES SWAP FOR FLOOR SKIMMING HEM LINES:

We saw a lot of overly frayed hemlines in 2021 with an almost fringe effect and I have to say, I wasn’t a fan then, not a fan now! I’m really not sad to see this fall out of style, especially when I LOVE what they’ve been replaced with, which is floor-skimming hemlines. Why do I love them so much you ask? Just try on a pair and see how LONG and SLIM your legs look in them and you’ll know what I’m talking about! These skyscraper jeans from Express are incredibly slimming and are a top contender for my all-time favorite pair of denim. I’m wearing a size 0 regular in these slimming jeans.

OUT OF STYLE: THE LOW-WAISTED JEGGING JEAN SWAP FOR THE MODERN SKINNY JEAN:

The very last denim trend on my list to ditch in 2023 is the low-waisted jegging style jeans. One question I get asked the most is “ARE SKINNY JEANS OUT OF STYLE?” and I am here to tell you that with a little modernization, traditional skinny jeans have turned into the “modern jean”. What does that mean? Well, it means we are now looking for a high-waisted SLIM straight leg as one of the top denim trends of 2023. These Agolde Merrel jeans are a PERFECT example of a modern jean and I can personally attest to how amazing they fit and make me feel. I’m wearing a size 24 in these flattering and stylish jeans.
